"I’ve often wondered if his reserve, which apparently often borders on coldness, might be the expression of a wariness developed over a lifetime of dealing with white people who either wanted to be the black guy’s friend to show how cool they were or were probing for weaknesses and character flaws to prove to themselves that no black guy could be smarter and more together and more accomplished than they knew themselves to be."

I assumed his character in office was more based on a wariness in the way black men who display emotion are perceived. The angry blackman, or the fast talking black preacher. If Obama had been effusive in his emotional displays it wouldn't have satisfied the pundits, it would have just been another reason to criticize him.
